Women prefer dating tall men
When it comes to dating, research has concluded that for the most part, women aren't as shallow as one might think.Various studies have determined that single straight men shouldn't waste their time stressing over things like in the March 2016 edition of the journal Personality and Individual Differences suggests that there is still one element of a man's appearance that women do indeed care deeply about. But the goal of this new study by researcher Kitae Sohn of Konkuk University in Seoul, South Korea was to determine if women who chose to "level up" and marry a tallboy were actually happier in the long-term.That's low-key why I always feel the need to have my hair with a bit of body — to make up for lost ground.That self-consciousness definitely stems over into my dating life too, and with online dating even more.I understand everyone has their preferences, but it's always been the most baffling thing to me how some people unabashedly put things like "Under 5'10" need not apply" right in their profile, dismissing someone right off the bat based on something so superficial.Though in fairness, when I see someone write something like that, I immediately lose attraction to their personality anyway.
It's hard to ignore something as obvious as height, especially if it makes a person stand out.I mean, the average American male is technically at 5'10", so by that measure I'm shorter than average, but should I self-identify as "short"?And since I also have a wider frame, I've always felt a bit stockier than I'd like.I've been told more than a few times that "there's no way I can tell you're trans," and that helps men feel comfortable dating me.I've even been in a couple of dating situations where people have thought I was kidding when I came out to them as trans.
As a blonde, blue-eyed woman of average height, I get asked out a lot more, though I'm not 100% sure dating's actually any easier!
